F&M Poll: Hillary Leads Trump, Cruz

Hillary TrumpThe Democratic front-runner is beating the leading two Republican candidates in head-to-head matchups.

According to the latest Franklin & Marshall poll, Hillary Clinton is ahead of Donald Trump and Ted Cruz in the Keystone State.

We’ve already written about the F&M results in the Democratic and Republican primaries, but they also ran their first head-to-head contests with Clinton against Trump and Cruz.

Hillary received 46% to Trump’s 33% while the former Secretary of State leads the Texas Senator 45% to 35%.

This may be due in large part to the favorability numbers of all three candidates.

While Clinton has a poor 41/52 favorable/unfavorable split, it is vastly superior to both Trump’s (27/65) and Cruz’s (27/54).

It appears we’re entering a general election season where half the commonwealth doesn’t like the Democratic front-runner but it’s not a drawback because two-thirds of the state don’t like the GOP front-runner.

This poll was conducted by the Center for Opinion Research at Franklin & Marshall College. They surveyed 828 registered voters from March 14th to March 20th. The margin of error is +/- 3.3%.

  1. And they still don’t include a cell phone sample which renders the poll useless as Terry Madonna knows but refuses to address.
